Today I'm launching a new feature on the Otherppl podcast: flashback episodes from the Otherppl archives.
These flashbacks will be short-form, and they will happen on Fridays.
They will feature highlights from past conversations: bits of insight and instruction and commiseration and revelation.
Today, in this inaugural flashback episode, an outtake from Episode 532, my conversation with bestselling author Ottessa Moshfegh. Eileen, her debut novel, was shortlisted for the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Man Booker Prize, and it won the PEN/Hemingway Award for debut fiction. Her other novels include My Year of Rest and Relaxation, Death in Her Hands, and Lapvona. She is also the author of the short story collection Homesick for Another World and a novella entitled McGlue.
This episode first aired on July 11, 2018.
